Werner will be expecting to be involved when Chelsea FC host Hasenhuttl's Southampton side at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as they look to make it back to back wins in the Premier League for the first time this season.

Southampton will be looking to pick up where they left off prior to the global breaks having picked up wins against West Brom and Burnley, having lost their opening two fixtures.

Lampard also confirmed Thiago Silva will not feature following his travel excursions with Brazil, though Ben Chilwell, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech will be in the squad after returning to fitness.

"Christian Pulisic is in the squad, he's fit and ready, and Hakim Ziyech is also in the squad".

The Chelsea boss says the 27-year-old has impressed in training and is in line to make his Blues' debut tomorrow, with Lampard hopeful he can make a big impact once he regains full match fitness.

Meanwhile, Brazilian centre-back Silva has been ruled out of the match due to the fact that he's had a long trip back from South America and he played in his nation's World Cup qualifier against Peru on Wednesday.

"Ben Chilwell is in the squad".

"With all the injuries we have in the number 10 position, with Stuey out and Moussa out, Theo has more chance to play on the weekend". "He's not fit to start but is fit enough to participate in some way, we hope".

Edouard Mendy, Chelsea's newly-signed goalkeeper, made his Premier League debut against Crystal Palace but a thigh injury picked up on worldwide duty with Senegal will likely keep him out of this game if not a while longer.

But he returned to action for Morocco and is expected to be a substitute on Saturday.
